ayngelcat: Devastator (Scrapper)
[personal profile] ayngelcat
So just to continue the 'amazing sexy constructicon construction equipment' theme - some of THESE machines are truly incredible.

All this lot should have been in at least one TF episode somewhere - especially that spiderbot! How cute XD And the crane ... *flails...* Maybe this IS Scrapper and co - they got upgrades :) Except the spider - he's a blow-in.

It rained all day today on and off, with really high winds. From the office I watched part of a roof come adrift, and a large gate swing open and nearly bash a car - so it shows how careful we have to be when this sort of weather suddenly hits. I think people get complacent when its dry for long spells.

I couldn't wait to get home and putter about in the garden, which is very happy now. I transplanted about five cape gooseberries and they should get off to a good start.

Meanwhile, poor kitteh isn't impressed. He keeps looking angrily at the great outdoors like 'how DARE it be like this?' And he hides in a cupboard when the rain gets heavy or thunder threatens - dunno why, because he grew up in the north where there were storms all the time!

ERMAHGAWD! Adorable consucticons! lol I can never drive by a construction site without smiling any more :)

It never fails to amaze me that you can garden. I certainly do not have a green thumb and basically kill every plant I touch o.O

Hahaha! They get to you like that after a while. There's a few places down the road from me where they hire out heavy construction equipment, so I get a nice eyeful of Constructicon on the way to and from work every day:-)

I think gardening's a gradually acquired skill! I don't remember being that good at it years ago!

HOW did you find the site (linked)? Those are amazing!
Totally agree - these should have been the Constructicons alt forms. Maybe it's the gestalt's alternative form?

Rain, rain, go away, come again some other day ....
Eh, not really. Some areas need the water and the rain. *Unless one finds oneself by a flooding river and extremely high spring-runoffs.
Hmm, tornado warning? It's a bit late/early for hurricane season. I think. Maybe depending the hemisphere, and side of continent.

Yeah, garden w/ rain! And worms in mud! Plants are happy. They get a nice cool drink.

What is it with cats (and dogs) when it comes to rain and lightning? They don't like it. My dog cowers under the bed when lightning and hail come acalling.

LOL I just tend to trawl around looking for things like this sometimes!

I agree - that big wheel one should be Devastator's alt mode perhaps?

This is Australia - where everything happens the wrong way around and in the future :DD Just entering winter here, and had the first rains after a long drought :)

We don't really get tornados here - just these big storms. They would be scary.

The rain was nice, but the cat's happier now it has abated again tonight :-) he especially hates hail too.

:D I gotta be honest, some of those machines scare me! I've always been a bit wary of heavy machinery, which is partly why I'm into TF - that weird scares me-fascinates me dichotomy! (Seriously, the first TF Bay movie trailer actually creeped me out!)

Weather! Have you sent it our way too? It's been blowing a gale here today and coming down sideways. No thunder and lightning though sadly - I really love this sort of weather. :D

LOL I can understand why they might be found scary. They are so BIG and we are so puny and defenseless by comparison. When accidents happen with this kind of equipment, they tend to be fatal. I find those assembly lines in factories with acid baths etc pretty freaky.

I guess some of my awestruckness with these machines is their sheer power. I find them sexy (I don't know what that says about me!)

Weather's still blowy here but that high wind and rain (which I love also) has gone :/

Wow, those are some impressive constructies! :D I was stuck in traffic at a construction area today and there was this ...thing, I have no idea what to call it, lol, but it had four little tread rollers for feet and a long conveyer belt thing sticking out in front like a giant neck and it was kind of adorable - I tried taking a picture through the window but it ended up with too much glare to really see.

I'm enjoying some nice rumbly thunderstorms rolling through tonight - doggy sometimes gets worried by the really big bangs, but kitties don't seem concerned. They like to watch the leaves blowing and rain. Yay garden puttering! I'm hoping for some hotter drier weather soon so I can stop mowing the grass and actually garden.

That sounds like a mobile ore processing plant - it takes iron (or other) ore loaded on to its belt into its innerds and scrunches it up, then spoits out the refuse. Yum yum. Seriously - there are big fixed in place versions of those that are more common.

At least, that's what it sounds like. I am no expert though!

Awww - kitties dreaming of chasing leaves. How adorable. I have no idea why Tigger has gone like he has. He's a wierdo sometimes! He did get hit by a car once - maybe he thinks the thunder is a giant somethingmobile coming to get him? XD
